Mini Raspberry Cobblers

001

After being together for almost nine years, I’ve heard most of my husband’s stories. After the twelfth telling of an old family joke, even the good storyteller in him begins to lose me. However, I do have ones I can hear over and over again. One of my favorite stories of his is about raspberries.

Raspberry Cobbler Recipe

When Mark was a little boy he visited the home of his grandparents, Florence and Frank, and trumped through their garden ripe with blossoming roses and a big raspberry bush bursting with berries. One of his favorite memories is of picking raspberries off of that bush and popping them in his mouth, tasting that they were still warm from the sun. Later, when his mom bought raspberries from the store, he tried one and spat it out. “These are cold!”, he said.

As an adult, my “picky” husband still loves raspberries but only if they’re room temperature or baked into a homemade dessert. Fine with me!

Homemade Whipped Cream

So, that’s why I made him this raspberry cobbler. Because I love that story. Because we both love juicy, melt-in-your-mouth raspberries. And because there is nothing better in the springtime than a dessert made with fresh fruit and lots of love.

Individual Raspberry Cobblers

This raspberry cobbler is sweet but slightly tart, which makes for a delicious combination with the soft, cakey top crust. These single-serving desserts are sensationally easy to make, and lots of fun when served in individual ramekins with a dollop of freshly whipped cream.

Raspberry Cobbler

Garnish them with a berry, serve with a couple of spoons and treat your sweetheart to a super delicious, simple and fruity dessert that’s full of love this spring!

    What a nice story. I’d love to go through a garden with blossoming raspberries.

    These mini cobblers are just darling. I don’t have any raspberries on hand but I do have about 8 lb of fresh strawberries sitting in my fridge so I’m definitely making these tomorrow! :)

    Hi Georgia, thanks for stopping by my blog. These mini raspberry cobblers are so cute! I love berries straight from the source as well. I’m fortunate to have a blueberry farm nearby, and those slightly warm berries are the best!

    Aww, I understand him! I picked raspberries off a bush and ate them that way too. It’s true that it doesn’t quite have the same feel when they’re grocery store-cold.

    Cobbler sounds delicious right now. Well, truth be told, it will always sounds delicious!

    Your cobblers do look delicious! I am getting to where I like raspberries more than strawberries. It seems like strawberries got bigger as time went on and in that process has lost a lot of their sweetness. I hope the same fate is not planned for raspberries!
    Fluffy cake, berries and cream-hard to resist. Your pictures are fantastic too!

    What a sweet story! For some reason I’m imagining that raspberry bush goldenly illuminated by the evening sun. Oh my, guess I just really miss summer, hence the overly dramatic image in my mind. ;)

    Your cobblers look just perfect!

    Love this Georgia! I tend to think of cobblers as more of a wintery dessert but with fresh raspberries………… yum, you’ve changed my mind!
    Oh, and I use to sneak those raspberries from my aunt’s garden too, still warm from the summer sun – I agree with your husband – there is nothing like it! :)

    I know what your husband means. I used to go berry picking when I was little and yes, the berries warmed by the sun were so superior to the ones that come from the cool room of the supermarket. Your dessert looks wonderful xx

    Georgia | The Comfort of Cooking — April 13, 2012 @ 1:19 pm

    @ Miranda – Yes, I rinse raspberries lightly right before I use them and then pat dry. As with most fruits, you should never rinse and then refrigerate as it speeds up the ripening process!

    You can try scaling these cobblers down to one serving, but I wouldn’t recommend microwaving it to bake it. You can warm them up in the microwave, though.
